is following this in washington. >> reporter: yeah, the fiscal cliff may be looming, but both sides have put negotiations on hold for now, to take a christmas holiday. no deal was reached this week to keep taxes from going up for everyone at the end of the year. house speaker john boehner, while saying he's still hopeful a sweeping deal can be reached, he's nonetheless, accusing the president of ignoring a huge problem here. >> this was the year of the size of our debt. all 16 trillion dollars surpassed the size of our entire economy. it's a grim many will have to bear if we don't come to grips with it. the president's solution of raising tax rates would still be red ink for as far as the eye can see he. >> reporter: president obama landed in hawaii this morning for a shorter than usual christmas break. and the white house yesterday, he said he thinks the comprehensive deal could still be reached, but at the same time, pushed for a scaled back plan to cut taxes for the middle class. >> even though democrats and republicans are arguing about whether those rates should go up for the wealthies
possible. >>> as we inch closer to the fiscal cliff, the president and top lawmakers are leaving washington, d.c. for the holiday. before he left for hawaii president obama issued a stern request to congressional leaders to approve legislation before the end of the year. >> once this legislation has agreed to i expect democrats and republicans to get back to washington and have it pass both chambers. i will immediately sign that legislation into law before january 1st of next year. >> the president was referring to legislation that would prevent a middle class tax hike and would protect unemployment insurance. he spoke after talking by phone with house speaker john boehner and meeting with senate majority leader. >>> the dow industrials dropped 120 points. the nasdaq fell 29. we also saw a number of conflicting economic reports that experts say suggests the economy is not sure where it's going top our consumer editor tom vacar is in san francisco's financial district with some explanations. >> reporter: there are two winds. those that are blowing and the much more important economic cross w
of the economic times. people are struggling and right now, washington is fixated on the fiscal cliff negotiations. obama left today to go to hawaii for the holidays and they're sort of fixated on that. i do know that yesterday the congressional leadership officially received their inauguration invites so at least we have a step in the right direction. >> eva longoria has been a huge supporter of the administration for this admin striegz and she was a tweet meister. >> she's co-chair. she came out big for obama and fund-raising for him and she helped with the latino vote which came out really strong in support of obama. so i think this inauguration and the party is really her payoff for the sweat equity she put into it. >> give us a peek behind the factory doors here and what's in the plans that we don't know about and who will be invited and those sorts of things. in the past there was the huge party or huge concert in 2009. that's not going to happen this year. this year it's really -- and i haven't heard a peep about the inauguration so far. i think it's really going to be toned down. abvowsly,
editor with the washington times and he is here to talk to us about the fiscal cliff. what's next. so let's get to it. on friday you had the lead story with the headline boehner's plan fails to win over g.o.p. the collapse is a serious blow to house speaker john boehner who hoped to gain leverage in his discussion with president obama and signals conservative republicans are inwilling to stomach any rise in tax rates even on those making more than $1 million which was mr. boehner's plan. so walk us through what happened on friday. how did we get there? and it seems like the speaker of the house didn't see this coming, and a lot of folks in washington want to know why not? guest: we begin the week with the speaker of the house saying negotiations between he and president obama had stalled. they were stuck on their -- i guess i would say maybe not their final offers but current offers. boehner said he would raise taxes on those making a million a year or more and get all told $1 trillion in tax increases which he wanted to be matched with $1 trillion in spending cuts and the rate increases
